I had a history of sinusitis from middle school to early college. After that, it never recurred until now. All I asked was whether Is sinusitis relapsing now? Thanks an explanation …
Good evening, thanks for the question
Experiencing symptoms such as flu or nasal congestion and pain in the face does lead to symptoms of sinusitis.
Sinusitis is a disease caused by inflammation of the sinus mucosa around the nose. The main symptoms of sinusitis include nasal congestion, thick mucus from the nose or throat, pain in the face and irritating disorders. The accompanying symptoms can be in the form of headaches, fever, bad breath, weakness, toothache, aching or feeling full of ear, and coughing. The more major symptoms obtained, the greater the possibility of diagnosis. Sinusitis is said to be acute if symptoms occur in less than 12 weeks.
Sinusitis can be recurrent or recurring because it is triggered by several things, such as a previous airway infection, a history of allergies, nasal polyps, or a weak immune system. Carry out further consultations for inspection and get adequate treatment. Antibiotics may be needed if sinus infections are caused by bacteria. However, antibiotics cannot cure sinusitis which is caused by a viral infection or due to irritation of substances in the air such as cigarette smoke. In such cases the symptoms will actually improve on their own. However, if the complaint does not improve within 1 week, you should do an examination with a doctor.
To prevent sinus infections, you can do the following:
1. Maintain hand hygiene by always washing hands with soap or using alcohol-based hand sanitizers
2. Avoid direct contact with people who are experiencing coughs and colds
3. Avoid exposure to cigarette smoke
4. Use a humidifier to clean the air in the house
That's all, hope you can help
